Thanks for all the info and advice, I bought the Sensenich which is in nice condition and the decals have nice patina. I passed on the large "unknown" prop.

I found another "unknown" prop, owner bought it at an "emotional" auction for a cool man-cave addition but its too long (7 1/2 ft) and wants to part ways. He cannot find any markings or numbers and its obviously a bit rough. Wants 300 bucks, do you have any idea what it could be?

Thanks!

Like a lot of props with no markings it could be "almost anything".

If it isn't identifiable now it's unlikely that it will ever be, and that's unlike your Sensenich, for instance, which will be identifiable 100 years from now.

It's probably worth 300 bucks, but that's mostly because it's a mystery and looks "old" and not much else. At least it hasn't been refinished, so there is a certain value to being original, almost no matter how rough it may look.

I bought the prop, has a decent amount of damage and some of the wood layers are separating but still all together. There is obvious glue where someone at what time tried to fix it. The metal sheathed is decent and looks like it has some type of yellow paint residue on the ends. Attached are a few photos of the only numbers I could find around the hub. There a number 1 and across the hub a number 2. Then up top around the hub are the numbers "A 6859". Thoughts?

I think I may have narrowed down what it is. I think it may be a Sensenich maybe off a PT-17 220hp Continental Radial engine? Below is a link to a prop that looks very similar, only 8 inches longer. My prop also has what appears to be remnants of yellow paint on the tips. Also the prop below has similar numbers and location stamped around the hub. The prop below is stamped "B7419" and my prop is stamped "A6859", could this be an earlier Sensenich?
